Today I want to congratulate and welcome three great Long Beach folks to our Washington D.C. team. They are packing up and making the move to the Capitol. They are also recent members of my city hall and campaign teams and I’m excited for their future in helping change the country.
Patrick Swymer is our new Operations Director where he will assist our Chief of Staff in managing human resources, budget, scheduling, and overall office operations in both the Washington DC and District Office. He recently served as Finance Director for my Congressional campaign and as President of the Long Beach Young Democrats.
Richard Blackmon will serve as Staff Assistant in Washington DC, working in operations, constituent services, office management, and member services. He recently served as a field deputy in my city hall office and is the former Student Trustee at Long Beach City College.
Christian Kerr is our new Legislative Aide and will work directly with the Legislative Director on drafting legislation, policy, doing research and staff committee assignments. Christian was recently my communications and research deputy at city hall and is involved in the Long Beach Young Democrats.
